And it is not because of hunting. During the War between the States, it took Union soldiers an average of 1,000 shots to hit a Confederate soldier. I'm willing to bet that the Confederates did considerably better, but no doubt it was still a very high number. The idea behind the NRA is to train future soldiers so that they know which end the bullets come out of, and how to use sights. This will translate into free ammunition and targets to help shooters to maintain their skills. The &quot;free ammunition&quot; program through the US Department of War will be discontinued in [[1927]]. The NRA will avoid political issues until the 1960s when they will support gun registration. By the mid-1970s, the NRA will try to distance themselves from the various gun controversies and focus on sports and hunting. In [[1994]] they will oppose the Federal Assault Weapons Ban (AWB) and that will mark a change in direction for the NRA. &lt;ref&gt;</ins></div></td></tr> <tr><td colspan="2">&#160;</td><td class='diff-marker'>+</td><td style="background: #cfc; color:black; font-size: smaller;"><div><ins style="color: red; font-weight: bold; text-decoration: none;">{{cite web | url = https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_Rifle_Association#History | date = 2016</ins></div></td></tr> <tr><td colspan="2">&#160;</td><td class='diff-marker'>+</td><td style="background: #cfc; color:black; font-size: smaller;"><div><ins style="color: red; font-weight: bold; text-decoration: none;">| accessdate = 15 September 2016</ins></div></td></tr> <tr><td colspan="2">&#160;</td><td class='diff-marker'>+</td><td style="background: #cfc; color:black; font-size: smaller;"><div><ins style="color: red; font-weight: bold; text-decoration: none;">| title = National Rifle Association - Wikipedia</ins></div></td></tr> <tr><td colspan="2">&#160;</td><td class='diff-marker'>+</td><td style="background: #cfc; color:black; font-size: smaller;"><div><ins style="color: red; font-weight: bold; text-decoration: none;">| quote = Until 1927, the United States Department of War provided free ammunition and targets to civilian rifle clubs with a minimum membership of ten United States citizens at least 16 years of age.</ins></div></td></tr> <tr><td colspan="2">&#160;</td><td class='diff-marker'>+</td><td style="background: #cfc; color:black; font-size: smaller;"><div><ins style="color: red; font-weight: bold; text-decoration: none;">}}</ins></div></td></tr> <tr><td colspan="2">&#160;</td><td class='diff-marker'>+</td><td style="background: #cfc; color:black; font-size: smaller;"><div><ins style="color: red; font-weight: bold; text-decoration: none;">&lt;/ref&gt;</ins></div></td></tr> <tr><td colspan="2">&#160;</td><td class='diff-marker'>+</td><td style="background: #cfc; color:black; font-size: smaller;"><div><ins style="color: red; font-weight: bold; text-decoration: none;"></ins></div></td></tr> <tr><td colspan="2">&#160;</td><td class='diff-marker'>+</td><td style="background: #cfc; color:black; font-size: smaller;"><div><ins style="color: red; font-weight: bold; text-decoration: none;">{{AlexShruggedComments| I was amazed to find that the NRA is an open carry advocate. That would not have happened 20 years ago or even 10 years ago. Regarding the number of bullets fired in a war, that is tracked as a metric by the government and it is always high. I recall an interview with Thomas Sowell, the economist, when he was asked about a recent shooting involving the police. Apparently they used an inordinate number of bullets. He pointed out that anyone using such a weapon in ACTUAL COMBAT will keep pulling the trigger until his target is down. What seems like an excessive number of bullets is simply a normal reaction to pressure. In fact, when I read a book on the taking of Fallujah, a US Marine noted that it could take as many as 17 shots to bring down a man charging his position. He speculated that this was due to the drugs the attackers were consuming, but I'm not so sure. I listened to an interview of an police officer after a shootout with a suspect NOT on drugs. It took more than 10 shots. He figured it was a problem with shot placement. He needed to aim more carefully to hit vital areas. I have also seen a video of police officers firing 100 shots into a vehicle going 5 miles an hour. The driver lived. There wasn't a lot of skill on display... nor much thinking. &lt;ref&gt;</ins></div></td></tr> <tr><td colspan="2">&#160;</td><td class='diff-marker'>+</td><td style="background: #cfc; color:black; font-size: smaller;"><div><ins style="color: red; font-weight: bold; text-decoration: none;">{{cite web | url = https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fallujah | date = 2016</ins></div></td></tr> <tr><td colspan="2">&#160;</td><td class='diff-marker'>+</td><td style="background: #cfc; color:black; font-size: smaller;"><div><ins style="color: red; font-weight: bold; text-decoration: none;">| accessdate = 15 September 2016</ins></div></td></tr> <tr><td colspan="2">&#160;</td><td class='diff-marker'>+</td><td style="background: #cfc; color:black; font-size: smaller;"><div><ins style="color: red; font-weight: bold; text-decoration: none;">| title = Fallujah - Wikipedia</ins></div></td></tr> <tr><td colspan="2">&#160;</td><td class='diff-marker'>+</td><td style="background: #cfc; color:black; font-size: smaller;"><div><ins style="color: red; font-weight: bold; text-decoration: none;">}}</ins></div></td></tr> <tr><td colspan="2">&#160;</td><td class='diff-marker'>+</td><td style="background: #cfc; color:black; font-size: smaller;"><div><ins style="color: red; font-weight: bold; text-decoration: none;">&lt;/ref&gt; &lt;ref&gt;Alex Shrugged notes: My recollection of the police officers shooting a drunk in a car comes from my recollection of the event as presented on a news program.

This is the 1st time in US history. As the War Between the States came to a close, many Confederate officials were replaced by appointment like Republican William Woods Holden who was appointed governor of North Carolina, until elected to office in his own right. His Party affiliation has changed over the years and he was in favor of slavery before he was against it. Nevertheless, he has worked hard to bring North Carolina back into the Union. He declares two North Carolina counties &quot;in rebellion&quot; after the KKK hangs Wyatt Outlaw in the public square. On the body is pinned the note: &quot;Beware you guilty both white and black.&quot; Details are sparse but Outlaw had initiated night patrols to quell KKK violence. The military arrests the usual suspects and this is where things get tricky. A Federal judge invokes ''habeas corpus'' to bring the suspects before him, but the governor delays, expecting the military to try them in military court. The judge demands that the governor provide evidence to hold the suspects. The governor cannot so they are freed. FYI, in the USA you have to PROVE that someone is guilty of the actual crime... unless you make a video about Libya that embarrasses the President and the Secretary of State. Then you are sent to prison and tormented until you are reduced to a cringing, mindless hulk. But back to the Governor: the KKK leaders in the state legislature present articles of impeachment on account of the governor defying ''habeas corpus'' and he gets the boot. Is he guilty? Maybe, but he failed to present evidence, so now he is out. KKK rules... for now. &lt;ref&gt;</ins></div></td></tr> <tr><td colspan="2">&#160;</td><td class='diff-marker'>+</td><td style="background: #cfc; color:black; font-size: smaller;"><div><ins style="color: red; font-weight: bold; text-decoration: none;">{{cite book</ins></div></td></tr> <tr><td colspan="2">&#160;</td><td class='diff-marker'>+</td><td style="background: #cfc; color:black; font-size: smaller;"><div><ins style="color: red; font-weight: bold; text-decoration: none;">| url = http://docsouth.unc.edu/browse/bios/pn0000761_bio.html</ins></div></td></tr> <tr><td colspan="2">&#160;</td><td class='diff-marker'>+</td><td style="background: #cfc; color:black; font-size: smaller;"><div><ins style="color: red; font-weight: bold; text-decoration: none;">| title&#160; = Dictionary of North Carolina Biography</ins></div></td></tr> <tr><td colspan="2">&#160;</td><td class='diff-marker'>+</td><td style="background: #cfc; color:black; font-size: smaller;"><div><ins style="color: red; font-weight: bold; text-decoration: none;">| chapter = William Woods Holden, 24 Nov. 1818-2 Nov. 1892</ins></div></td></tr> <tr><td colspan="2">&#160;</td><td class='diff-marker'>+</td><td style="background: #cfc; color:black; font-size: smaller;"><div><ins style="color: red; font-weight: bold; text-decoration: none;">| editor = Powell, William S.</ins></div></td></tr> <tr><td colspan="2">&#160;</td><td class='diff-marker'>+</td><td style="background: #cfc; color:black; font-size: smaller;"><div><ins style="color: red; font-weight: bold; text-decoration: none;">| publisher = University of North Carolina Press</ins></div></td></tr> <tr><td colspan="2">&#160;</td><td class='diff-marker'>+</td><td style="background: #cfc; color:black; font-size: smaller;"><div><ins style="color: red; font-weight: bold; text-decoration: none;">| date = 1996</ins></div></td></tr> <tr><td colspan="2">&#160;</td><td class='diff-marker'>+</td><td style="background: #cfc; color:black; font-size: smaller;"><div><ins style="color: red; font-weight: bold; text-decoration: none;">| quote = In May 1865 President Andrew Johnson summoned state Union leaders to Washington, D.C., to discuss North Carolina's reentry into the Union, and from that meeting came the decision to appoint Holden provisional governor of the state, in which capacity he served from 29 May to 28 Dec. 1865. In this office he exerted leadership in the reorganization of state, county, and local governments, making more than 3,000 nonpartisan appointments in an effort to unify the state; supervised the taking of amnesty oaths; revised the state constitution to meet national demands and restore federal authority; and worked towards the state's economic recovery. Despite these efforts, he was again denied the governorship in late 1865, when he was defeated by Jonathan Worth. As compensation, he was offered a seat in the U.S. Senate, but declined in order to resume the editorship of the Standard. Later, President Johnson offered him the post of minister to San Salvador, which he chose not to pursue in view of potential confirmation difficulties. </ins></div></td></tr> <tr><td colspan="2">&#160;</td><td class='diff-marker'>+</td><td style="background: #cfc; color:black; font-size: smaller;"><div><ins style="color: red; font-weight: bold; text-decoration: none;">| accessdate = 15 September 2016</ins></div></td></tr> <tr><td colspan="2">&#160;</td><td class='diff-marker'>+</td><td style="background: #cfc; color:black; font-size: smaller;"><div><ins style="color: red; font-weight: bold; text-decoration: none;">}}</ins></div></td></tr> <tr><td colspan="2">&#160;</td><td class='diff-marker'>+</td><td style="background: #cfc; color:black; font-size: smaller;"><div><ins style="color: red; font-weight: bold; text-decoration: none;">&lt;/ref&gt; &lt;ref&gt;</ins></div></td></tr> <tr><td colspan="2">&#160;</td><td class='diff-marker'>+</td><td style="background: #cfc; color:black; font-size: smaller;"><div><ins style="color: red; font-weight: bold; text-decoration: none;">{{cite web</ins></div></td></tr> <tr><td colspan="2">&#160;</td><td class='diff-marker'>+</td><td style="background: #cfc; color:black; font-size: smaller;"><div><ins style="color: red; font-weight: bold; text-decoration: none;">| url = http://www.fjc.gov/servlet/nGetInfo?jid=275&amp;cid=999&amp;ctype=na&amp;instate=na</ins></div></td></tr> <tr><td colspan="2">&#160;</td><td class='diff-marker'>+</td><td style="background: #cfc; color:black; font-size: smaller;"><div><ins style="color: red; font-weight: bold; text-decoration: none;">| title&#160; = History of the Federal Judiciary</ins></div></td></tr> <tr><td colspan="2">&#160;</td><td class='diff-marker'>+</td><td style="background: #cfc; color:black; font-size: smaller;"><div><ins style="color: red; font-weight: bold; text-decoration: none;">| work = Federal Judicial Center (GOVERNMENT SITE)</ins></div></td></tr> <tr><td colspan="2">&#160;</td><td class='diff-marker'>+</td><td style="background: #cfc; color:black; font-size: smaller;"><div><ins style="color: red; font-weight: bold; text-decoration: none;">| date = 2016</ins></div></td></tr> <tr><td colspan="2">&#160;</td><td class='diff-marker'>+</td><td style="background: #cfc; color:black; font-size: smaller;"><div><ins style="color: red; font-weight: bold; text-decoration: none;">| quote = Received a recess appointment from Andrew Johnson on August 19, 1865, to a seat vacated by Asa Biggs; nominated to the same position by Andrew Johnson on December 20, 1865.

Many citizens of Alamance and Caswell counties had been arrested for violence connected with the Ku Klux Klan. When Governor W. W. Holden frustrated the writs of habeas corpus issued in their behalf by state Chief Justice Richmond M. Pearson, the defendants got ex-Confederate General Mathew W. Ransom to petition Brooks for their release under the new Fourteenth Amendment. Brooks ordered the prisoners brought before him at the federal court in Salisbury. Governor Holden telegraphed President U. S. Grant to rescind Brooks's order but to no avail. On 19 Aug. 1870, Colonel George W.

Then in [[2003]], California Governor Gray Davis, Democrat, suffered from criticism over his poor handling of the state's energy crisis. Much of the problem was his Party's own making. The state had partially deregulated the power industry, but without a way for them to expand their power facilities effectively, they went bankrupt. The state turned to power companies outside of the state, but there was a sudden power shortage. (Oh, shucks! How did that happen?) Blackouts and brownouts ensued. Davis declared a state of emergency. The Governor signed long-term deals for energy at ridiculous prices. The energy company, Enron, made a killing. They also engaged in some shady business practices, so they folded, leaving a lot of their investors holding the bag. Governor Davis blamed Enron more than any other factor in losing the governorship. Davis had already removed much of the government stranglehold over the California power industry when Arnold Schwarzenegger gave him the boot. The energy problem was solved. The people waited for the new &quot;Govern-a-tor&quot; to kick the backsides of all those political &quot;girly-men&quot;. He was a lot of fun, but ineffective. California is back to business-as-usual... way back... with Jerry Brown in office... again. His former girlfriend, singer Linda Ronstadt, had called him &quot;Governor Moonbeam&quot; and the name stuck. Good luck to them all. They will need it. &lt;ref&gt;</ins></div></td></tr> <tr><td colspan="2">&#160;</td><td class='diff-marker'>+</td><td style="background: #cfc; color:black; font-size: smaller;"><div><ins style="color: red; font-weight: bold; text-decoration: none;">{{cite web | url = https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/California_electricity_crisis | date = 2016</ins></div></td></tr> <tr><td colspan="2">&#160;</td><td class='diff-marker'>+</td><td style="background: #cfc; color:black; font-size: smaller;"><div><ins style="color: red; font-weight: bold; text-decoration: none;">| accessdate = 15 September 2016</ins></div></td></tr> <tr><td colspan="2">&#160;</td><td class='diff-marker'>+</td><td style="background: #cfc; color:black; font-size: smaller;"><div><ins style="color: red; font-weight: bold; text-decoration: none;">| title = California electricity crisis - Wikipedia</ins></div></td></tr> <tr><td colspan="2">&#160;</td><td class='diff-marker'>+</td><td style="background: #cfc; color:black; font-size: smaller;"><div><ins style="color: red; font-weight: bold; text-decoration: none;">| quote = As the FERC report concluded, market manipulation was only possible as a result of the complex market design produced by the process of partial deregulation.

The book discusses many related issues, including evolutionary psychology, evolutionary ethics, differences between human races, differences between sexes, the dominant role of women in mate choice, and the relevance of the evolutionary theory to society.</ins></div></td></tr> <tr><td colspan="2">&#160;</td><td class='diff-marker'>+</td><td style="background: #cfc; color:black; font-size: smaller;"><div><ins style="color: red; font-weight: bold; text-decoration: none;">}}</ins></div></td></tr> <tr><td colspan="2">&#160;</td><td class='diff-marker'>+</td><td style="background: #cfc; color:black; font-size: smaller;"><div><ins style="color: red; font-weight: bold; text-decoration: none;">&lt;/ref&gt; &lt;ref&gt;</ins></div></td></tr> <tr><td colspan="2">&#160;</td><td class='diff-marker'>+</td><td style="background: #cfc; color:black; font-size: smaller;"><div><ins style="color: red; font-weight: bold; text-decoration: none;">{{cite book</ins></div></td></tr> <tr><td colspan="2">&#160;</td><td class='diff-marker'>+</td><td style="background: #cfc; color:black; font-size: smaller;"><div><ins style="color: red; font-weight: bold; text-decoration: none;">| publisher = Delta</ins></div></td></tr> <tr><td colspan="2">&#160;</td><td class='diff-marker'>+</td><td style="background: #cfc; color:black; font-size: smaller;"><div><ins style="color: red; font-weight: bold; text-decoration: none;">| isbn = 9780385340922</ins></div></td></tr> <tr><td colspan="2">&#160;</td><td class='diff-marker'>+</td><td style="background: #cfc; color:black; font-size: smaller;"><div><ins style="color: red; font-weight: bold; text-decoration: none;">| title = Evolution for Everyone: How Darwin's Theory Can Change the Way We Think About Our Lives</ins></div></td></tr> <tr><td colspan="2">&#160;</td><td class='diff-marker'>+</td><td style="background: #cfc; color:black; font-size: smaller;"><div><ins style="color: red; font-weight: bold; text-decoration: none;">| url = http://openlibrary.org/books/OL9883847M/Evolution_for_Everyone</ins></div></td></tr> <tr><td colspan="2">&#160;</td><td class='diff-marker'>+</td><td style="background: #cfc; color:black; font-size: smaller;"><div><ins style="color: red; font-weight: bold; text-decoration: none;">| author = Wilson, David Sloan</ins></div></td></tr> <tr><td colspan="2">&#160;</td><td class='diff-marker'>+</td><td style="background: #cfc; color:black; font-size: smaller;"><div><ins style="color: red; font-weight: bold; text-decoration: none;">| publication-date = December 26, 2007</ins></div></td></tr> <tr><td colspan="2">&#160;</td><td class='diff-marker'>+</td><td style="background: #cfc; color:black; font-size: smaller;"><div><ins style="color: red; font-weight: bold; text-decoration: none;">}}</ins></div></td></tr> <tr><td colspan="2">&#160;</td><td class='diff-marker'>+</td><td style="background: #cfc; color:black; font-size: smaller;"><div><ins style="color: red; font-weight: bold; text-decoration: none;">&lt;/ref&gt; &lt;ref&gt;</ins></div></td></tr> <tr><td colspan="2">&#160;</td><td class='diff-marker'>+</td><td style="background: #cfc; color:black; font-size: smaller;"><div><ins style="color: red; font-weight: bold; text-decoration: none;">{{cite web | url = https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/David_Sloan_Wilson | date = 2016</ins></div></td></tr> <tr><td colspan="2">&#160;</td><td class='diff-marker'>+</td><td style="background: #cfc; color:black; font-size: smaller;"><div><ins style="color: red; font-weight: bold; text-decoration: none;">| accessdate = 15 September 2016</ins></div></td></tr> <tr><td colspan="2">&#160;</td><td class='diff-marker'>+</td><td style="background: #cfc; color:black; font-size: smaller;"><div><ins style="color: red; font-weight: bold; text-decoration: none;">| title = David Sloan Wilson - Wikipedia</ins></div></td></tr> <tr><td colspan="2">&#160;</td><td class='diff-marker'>+</td><td style="background: #cfc; color:black; font-size: smaller;"><div><ins style="color: red; font-weight: bold; text-decoration: none;">| quote = Wilson and his co-author E.

Yet these origins are indisputable and are clearly traceable to the talmudic story about the two first-century-BCE rabbinic sages, Hillel and Shammai, contemporaries paired together by Jewish tradition as archetypical opposites: Hillel the tolerant and liberal 'loose constructionist' of the Law, Shammai the exacting and inflexible 'strict constructionist.' In one story about them, a gentile comes to both and asks, with the obvious intention of provoking them, to be taught the whole Torah while standing on one leg. Shammai is indeed provoked and gives the man an angry whack with a measuring rod. Hillel replies, 'That which is hateful to you, do not unto another: This is the whole Torah.

Arthur Sullivan is an up and coming composer. He produces parlor music, music for plays and weddings. This year he writes the music to the hymn &quot;Onward Christian Soldiers&quot; which will later be adopted by the Salvation Army as their processional music. Sullivan is also commissioned to produce Christmas music for a new holiday opera along with William Gilbert. The opera is a success, but the pair will not team up again until a backer commissions a series of original comedic operas including: ''HMS Pinafore'', ''The Pirates of Penzance'' and ''The Mikado''. The legend of Gilbert and Sullivan is born. Sullivan will receive a knighthood for his music, and Gilbert will later be knighted for his dramatic plays... a first in knighthoods. Currently a playwright is not considered proper occupation for a gentleman, but Sullivan will change all that by having his own works properly bound and printed for a gentleman's library. His first bound work will end with Gilbert's comedy, &quot;Trial by Jury&quot;. &lt;ref&gt;</ins></div></td></tr> <tr><td colspan="2">&#160;</td><td class='diff-marker'>+</td><td style="background: #cfc; color:black; font-size: smaller;"><div><ins style="color: red; font-weight: bold; text-decoration: none;">{{cite web</ins></div></td></tr> <tr><td colspan="2">&#160;</td><td class='diff-marker'>+</td><td style="background: #cfc; color:black; font-size: smaller;"><div><ins style="color: red; font-weight: bold; text-decoration: none;">| url = https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=63yBpl6Oixo</ins></div></td></tr> <tr><td colspan="2">&#160;</td><td class='diff-marker'>+</td><td style="background: #cfc; color:black; font-size: smaller;"><div><ins style="color: red; font-weight: bold; text-decoration: none;">| title&#160; = Onward Christian Soldiers sung by Mahalia Jackson</ins></div></td></tr> <tr><td colspan="2">&#160;</td><td class='diff-marker'>+</td><td style="background: #cfc; color:black; font-size: smaller;"><div><ins style="color: red; font-weight: bold; text-decoration: none;">| work = YouTube</ins></div></td></tr> <tr><td colspan="2">&#160;</td><td class='diff-marker'>+</td><td style="background: #cfc; color:black; font-size: smaller;"><div><ins style="color: red; font-weight: bold; text-decoration: none;">| date = 2016</ins></div></td></tr> <tr><td colspan="2">&#160;</td><td class='diff-marker'>+</td><td style="background: #cfc; color:black; font-size: smaller;"><div><ins style="color: red; font-weight: bold; text-decoration: none;">| accessdate = 15 September 2016</ins></div></td></tr> <tr><td colspan="2">&#160;</td><td class='diff-marker'>+</td><td style="background: #cfc; color:black; font-size: smaller;"><div><ins style="color: red; font-weight: bold; text-decoration: none;">}}</ins></div></td></tr> <tr><td colspan="2">&#160;</td><td class='diff-marker'>+</td><td style="background: #cfc; color:black; font-size: smaller;"><div><ins style="color: red; font-weight: bold; text-decoration: none;">&lt;/ref&gt;</ins></div></td></tr> <tr><td colspan="2">&#160;</td><td class='diff-marker'>+</td><td style="background: #cfc; color:black; font-size: smaller;"><div><ins style="color: red; font-weight: bold; text-decoration: none;">&lt;ref&gt;</ins></div></td></tr> <tr><td colspan="2">&#160;</td><td class='diff-marker'>+</td><td style="background: #cfc; color:black; font-size: smaller;"><div><ins style="color: red; font-weight: bold; text-decoration: none;">{{cite web | url = https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thespis_(opera) | date = 2016</ins></div></td></tr> <tr><td colspan="2">&#160;</td><td class='diff-marker'>+</td><td style="background: #cfc; color:black; font-size: smaller;"><div><ins style="color: red; font-weight: bold; text-decoration: none;">| accessdate = 15 September 2016</ins></div></td></tr> <tr><td colspan="2">&#160;</td><td class='diff-marker'>+</td><td style="background: #cfc; color:black; font-size: smaller;"><div><ins style="color: red; font-weight: bold; text-decoration: none;">| title = Thespis (opera) - Wikipedia</ins></div></td></tr> <tr><td colspan="2">&#160;</td><td class='diff-marker'>+</td><td style="background: #cfc; color:black; font-size: smaller;"><div><ins style="color: red; font-weight: bold; text-decoration: none;">| quote = Thespis premi&amp;egrave;red in London at the Gaiety Theatre on 26 December 1871.

''Ivanhoe''. Often a production will exceed its budget unless someone is paying attention. It reminds me of the joke slogan for Osborne Computers, &quot;We lose money on every unit but we make it up in volume.&quot; (Osbourne made portable computers popular along with Kaypro and GRiD Systems.) I've only seen one Gilbert and Sullivan opera on stage... The Mikado. It was freakin' hilarious, but you have to be paying attention. Some of the jokes can go right past you. I found myself the only person laughing in a massive theater filled to the rafters when I caught a joke so obvious (to me) that I wondered what people were thinking... or if they were thinking at all. I believe the actors appreciated that I caught the joke. They had paused the production briefly to cue the audience. They did everything but flash a sign reading &quot;Laugh here!&quot; Oh well.
